Initiated informally by the Governor in May 1987, the Governor's Executive Committee on Drunk and Drugged Driving was established by Executive Order in 1994 (Executive Order 01.01.1994.30). The Committee was to coordinate the policies and actions of State agencies regarding drunk or drugged driving. It also was to recommends ways to deter alcohol- and drug-impaired driving. Periodically, the Committee made program and policy recommendations to the Governor.

The Committee last met in July 1994.

In May 2016, authorization for the Committee was rescinded (Executive Order 01.01.2016.06).
